Common Questions and Answers about Osteoarthritis neck dizzy


Avatar f tn For the last 10-12 days i have been experiencing dizziness and nausea, starts with a tingling warm sensation in my upper back and moves up the back of my head, at times down both of my arms, i get extremely dizzy (to the point i stagger) and for lack of better explanation i get dumb...cant concentrate, sow and sluggish. I should back up and tell you that this have been happening for approx the last two years. Had MRI/MRA of head and neck and the results showed nothing.
Avatar n tn We reviewed the dizzy feeling that I constantly have and so far the treatments have not helped the dizzy. The sharp neck pain has let up, but I do feel an ache inside my neck that goes up to the base of my head. And 2 days ago woke with the bad migraine headache and the severe dizzy is back! Have had a headache for 4 days straight, back & sides of head mostly where it is. Any suggestions of who/ where I should go next.
Avatar f tn I have arthritis in most of my joints, but I have more than one type of arthritis too. If you are looking for symptoms of osteoarthritis in the neck, they include pain, stiffness, tenderness, weakness, tingling or soarness in the arms, headaches and even balance problems.
Avatar m tn i have been having upper back and neck pain along with numbness in fingers and toes.

Avatar n tn I have the cracking of the neck to and I know it is arthritis, I used to do the collanetics neck exersises, I guess it did work, if you have any additrional information about this please let me know. Also I wont get into details because it is a long story, but about 10 yrs ago 51 yrs old,I had a terrible ear infection and my neck cracking, they got me in Antibiotis and it did not help.
748543 tn?1463449675 One of the most difficult concepts to get across to my TMD patients and other doctors is the connectivity of the Jaw and the Neck. In fact, it is my strong belief that TMD/TMJ should really be classified as a Craniocervical Disease and hence fall under the umbrella of medical coverage rather than treated strictly as a dental problem. To the Neuromuscular-minded dentist, "Occlusion" is an extension of general Postural Consideration.
Avatar n tn Since then I am having trouble with pain in the neck and shoulder area just below the fusion area. I wake in the morning with a headache then turns to pain in lower neck and shoulders. I have talked to the neurosurgeon who did the surgery and he shrugged his shoulders and said I have no idea and sent me back to my neurologist. He gave me a series of injections in both shoulders and the pain stopped for a couple days but then came right back.

Avatar f tn A less technical name for this condition is osteoarthritis of the neck, or degenerative disk disease of the neck.. The most common symptom is stiff neck which is most often one of the very first signs. Neck stiffness tends to grow progressively worse over time. Along with pain, cervical spondylosis can be accompanied by parathesias and muscle weakness in the neck, shoulders, arms and hands, and a syndrome called “numb, clumsy hands”. Dizziness may occur on neck movement .
Avatar n tn It is like I can not get a full breath into my lungs easily. I have osteo-arthritis and DDD with alot of pain in my upper back and neck. Caffine makes it worse. I am experiencing dizziness and brain fog also.
Avatar f tn As your blood tests for autoimmune disorders have come back negative and you are feeling dizzy when looking down and looking up, have you had your neck x-rayed? Osteoarthritis in the neck can cause these symptoms. Have you been involved in a car accident and suffered with whiplash at some point? Osteoarthritis is a degeneration of the bones and cartilage and this happens slowly over time and also if you have had any injuries.
587787 tn?1218808059 If I strech my neck even side to side it grinds, if I lean it back I get very very dizzy and nauseus. I sometimes think traction on my neck would feel really good, That may sound grusome, but it really sounds wonderful to me. It really feels as if my neck bones are all scrunched together. My Dr said the MRI didnt indicate that. That is why I am waiting to see a specialist, a second openion for that matter. I just feel there is much more to it. How much magnesium would I need to take?
Avatar f tn If you have a similar problem with the cervical vertebrae (bones in the neck), that will also explain why you feel dizzy when you move your head or look up. Ask your doctor to refer you to physiotherapy, they will advise you of what or what you should be doing and give you exercises to do on your lower back and neck it this is appropriate. I have degeneration of my lower spine (osteoarthritis) and get pains that run down my legs and pins and needles in the feet. Dr.
Avatar m tn I've been tested for rheuma, but that was negative. Most of my pain is around the neck. I stretch it out about every ten minutes. Any type of stress will instantly tighten it making it feel like someone is trying to choke me. Rarely I'll have a little trouble breathing from the muscles in the front of my neck and chest muscles tightening, especially after sneezing. But that's partial to blame from my asthma.
Avatar m tn We went for a second opinion that rheumatologist said he had an aggressive form of osteoarthritis. She said for him to take large steroid shots every three months. The shots were so large our Dr. Called them back to make sure a mistake had not been made. He did that for a year before deciding it wasn't working. The pain was getting worse and increasing frequency of outbreaks.he started going to a pain doctor who put him on patches and started injecting his lower back and neck.
Avatar n tn I was doing some research over the internet and thought maybe it could be vertigo, but I am 18, could I really have vertigo? I have had dizzy and nauseaous spells in the past but they recently have become much more abundant. For the past two weeeks I feel as if it comes atleast once a day. I will get the dizzy feeling and have to lay down and im ALWAYS tired. I dont know if it may be my poor diet as a college student or what, but I do not have the energy I used to have. I always want to sleep.
Avatar f tn And other than these symptoms, I have joint pain in hands and arms whose cause is still unknown and tingling in my face and neck whose cause is also still unknown and syrinx in my thoracic spine ( from T 3 to T9), and mild bulging disc at L4 (lumber spine), mild scoliosis, and mild osteoarthritis in my right ankle. I would really appreciate it if anyone could respond to my question.
Avatar n tn Postural hypertension is for example when you rise up too quicky from a sitting position and there is a blood rush to the brain. I suffer from postural hypertension becaue I have osteoarthritis in my neck. Does your neck creak and crack when you turn your head? Are your dizzy sensations made worse when you turn your head? Dizzy turns can also arise from urinary tract infections.
527589 tn?1301681778 Also during this time I had various episodes of joint pain; aching left knee(mild osteoarthritis), sticking/painful left hip(m/o w/spurs), right elbow and wrist pain(m/o), very low back pain(mild stenosis, m/o), sometimes sever neck pain and stiffness where I couldn't turn my head(m/o, spurs, mild sten). None of the bone aches happened at the same time and lasted 2-7 days each. Occassionaly I would have left side mid back burning and pain. Something always hurt.
1125587 tn?1259716816 i had always had some degree of back/neck pain since i can remember and chalked up the joint pain to age and/or just being out of shape, the fatigue i figured was just my body saying i needed sleep??, this pain however was much different and worse. the fatigue was interfering with my job, my family and my sanity. i could not stay awake, fell asleep at work, had a hard time driving and trying not to nod out.
897447 tn?1242239587 I can't look up or down without searing pain in neck that shoots a electric-shock-like thing down my spine....get very dizzy...spinning, I usually lean to the right more with trying to regain my balance...... during the last couple of weeks my ears (this is new)at different times would start to ring very loud for no reason......sometimes causing extreme vertigo and nausea So last night............
1228375 tn?1406045327 Sometimes I can feel dizzy w/o actually 'being' dizzy (if that makes any sense), speech is being affected, short-term memory is having some issues now.... and walking gets a little shakey from time to time. There have been off and on symptoms going on most of my life that I just dismissed as normal, such as: migraines, osteoarthritis (as I've aged.... I'm 45 currently), mis-steps when walking occassionally, mild confusion and numerical dislexia to name a few.
440535 tn?1312371665 soft velvetâ-like skin; variable skin hyper-extensibility; fragile skin that tears or bruises easily (bruising may be severe); severe scarring; slow and poor wound healing; development of molluscoid pseudo tumors (fleshy lesions associated with scars over pressure areas).
Avatar n tn I guess the pain management doctor was trying to say that anything going on in the neck can cause this. I have osteoarthritis in my neck with facet degeneration and osteophytes. So, having all of those nerves compressed with osteo just really messed me up. Then add meds to the mix and I got worse. The meds also caused panic attacks (sweating and heart racing)but I believe this was caused more so by the FEAR of passing out from the dizziness. I would be at work when this would happen.
Avatar m tn It was just over two years ago now and the time I was travelling @ around about 35-40 miles an hour , I didn't think much about the accident at the time until I started getting all sorts of different symptoms after a short time, ranging from headaches to, pain in the Neck, shoulders and arms,weakness and numbness in my arms and hands & tingling too ,dizzy spells and feeling sick, forgetfulness, anxiety , poor concentration, loss of memory, I couldn't sleep also for the severe pain at nig
